Undoubtedly one of Monterey Bay's hidden gems! Our ocean view home has a beautiful view of Lover's Point and is perfectly located near EVERYTHING Pacific Grove has to offer. Enjoy the panoramic ocean view while walking along Monterey Bay's recreation trail which is just outside the door. Walk just one block to all of Pacific Grove's fantastic restaurants and shops. View the most amazing underwater sea creatures and wildlife at the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium less than a mile away in Cannery Row. We'll provide you with 2 complimentary aquarium passes to use during your stay.
Our home was pro...fessionally remodeled down to the studs in 2006 and kept as a private vacation home. Each room has been professionally decorated with Tommy Bahama furniture and designer selected accessories. It has never been available as a rental until now. It features Brazilian cherry hardwood floors throughout, custom mahogany cabinetry, custom mahogany doors and windows, new window coverings, skylights and old world textures and arches. It won the Preservation Award from the Heritage Society of Pacific Grove for restoration in exemplary fashion and retaining original exterior form and features.
The beautiful gas fireplace welcomes you into the living room and is ready to keep you warm and toasty while you enjoy the view of Lover's Point. A large LCD flat screen TV and all the channels you could ever want to watch are ready to entertain you.
The gourmet kitchen has Jenn-Air stainless steel appliances and custom made butcher block counter tops. Tumbled stone tiles accent the walls. It's stocked with everything you'll need to prepare and serve your meals. The romantic bath is beautifully constructed with travertine tile and features a Jacuzzi brand Solon Spa with a luxuriously relaxing whirlpool and therapeutically effervescent jets. It comfortably accommodates two people.
The master bedroom has a new Hotel brand king size pillow top mattress. The guest room has a new Beautyrest queen. Both are amazingly comfortable. Each room has a new LCD flat screen TV. Linens and towels as well as a washer and dryer are provided to give you all the comforts of home.
Open the french doors and enjoy your coffee and a view of the ocean each morning on the backyard patio. Fun filled days can end here romantically each evening next to the warm fire pit. If you like to cook outdoors, a stainless steel gas barbeque is ready to grill your favorite dinner.
For those that enjoy culinary perfection a one block walk will put you in the middle of some of the best dining Monterey Bay has to offer. Pepper's (the best gourmet Mexican food ever - and a local favorite) is literally a block up the street. You'll also find Passionfish (excellent seafood and a favorite of Rachael Ray), Fandango (try their famous rack of lamb and don't miss the Grand Marnier souffle for dessert), Joe Rombi's (for the best Italian around) and a host of other restaurants to wow your taste buds within a stroll.
For the adventurous vacationer just walk out the front door and walk, run, bike or skate for miles on the Monterey Bay recreation trail. You can literally enjoy the view while walking to the aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf and downtown Monterey. The hardcore bicyclists and runners can follow the trail for 18 miles from Pacific Grove all the way to Castroville with access to Seaside and Marina.
Surfers, kayakers, scuba divers and sunbathers can just walk across the street and down the stairs (Yes! Its that close!) to Lover's Point beach and start your adventure. On busy weekends you'll see people launching here all day long. Grab some lunch at the snack bar and you'll never have to leave the beach.
Everyone will enjoy a stroll through Lover's Point Park. Weddings are ongoing every few hours, artists are painting seascapes and everyone is enjoying the day.
You'll love our home. Its luxuriously comfortable, central to everything and easily accessible. Give us a call and we'll be happy to tell you all about it and help you plan a great vacation.Read more

This villa is truly home away from home! the house is absolutely gorgeous and is equipped with pretty much everything you may need. The location is prime! i cant stress that enough. From the moment we walked into the home till the last day we felt so comfortable and cozy. The house shows nothing but pride. The owner was seriously the nicest person ever which made our trip that much better. Thank you for opening up your home to us and hope to be back soon!.

This amazing get away is number one on my list by far! The location of the villa is the ideal spot for a vacation,with the beach being right next to the house. Everything seems to be within a couple minutes from the house. It's the cleanest house I've ever stayed in and I really loved how as soon as I walked in, the interior has a "home" vibe as if it were my own. The beautiful decorations and design on the house is the perfect touch for a vacation home. Not to mention the service we were provided. Barbara, simply put, is the nicest lady to rent from. Agreements and payments were strainless and received my deposit on the day of checkout which is a big deal to me. I would definitely stay in the Spanish villa again!

By far the best place to stay in the Monterey area! We stayed with our two boys and had a great time. The house is beautiful and has everything you need to feel completely at home, including a quaint back patio with a BBQ and fire pit. I am very picky about cleanliness and this house was spotless! The location is perfect; it is across the street from the beach and a short distance from Cannery Row. We enjoyed several walks along the beach and especially enjoyed using the included aquarium passes. The owners were wonderful to work with and easy to get a hold of. I could not have asked for a better experience and we cannot wait to stay again!! Read more
Thank you so much for staying with us. It was nice meeting you and your family. Your two boys are adorable. We're very happy you enjoyed your vacation and hope that you will come back and visit again soon.
Such a beautiful home

This place by far was the prettiest and most well-decorated home I have ever seen. I have stayed and taken my family to many homes in Monterey, but nothing compares to this one. I have never seen such a beautiful house and the location is awesome. It is walking distance to many activities and just a walk cross the street to the beach. The owner was very accommodating and easy to get ahold of if we ever had a question. I was extremely happy with our stay and would definitely recommend it. Read more
We're happy that you enjoyed our home and that it worked out so well for your family. Your girls were very eager to see the aquarium. I'm sure it was an adventure that they will talk about for a long time. Thank you Julie!

This house is amazing. Well decorated, fire place and everything you could need in the kitchen. Even has a really nice quaint backyard with a fire pit and a big BBQ. The beds were amazingly comfortable and their is a big jet tub in the bathroom. The place is perfect for a family or just like me and my wife went for our 1 year anniversary. It is across the street from the ocean and you can hop on a bike trail and within 10 minutes, you are at Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay aquarium. My wife and I did this several times. The view was breathtaking. The owners were very nice and easy to get a hold of. A+++
Warning-Security deposit retained without any reason given,

This rental was a disastrous experience which was the low point of our trip to California. The owner has failed to return our security deposit or even respond to emails and requests for repayment. No explanation or attempt to justify this action has been made.
Premises were OK but we found a plumbing problem shortly after arrival which marred the stay and the owner was clearly at a distance and was unable to come around and help resolve the problem with us. Contemplating next steps to get our money back, but could do without the hassle, worst experience from 5 rentals during this trip to the us and now very costly also. The area was interesting but stay somewhere else. Read more
For years our home stood as a private vacation residence that we have taken particular care in preserving. We take great pride in sharing this award winning custom built and decorated home with our guests. It is unfortunate for us when a guest either intentionally or through some unfathomable reckless activity destroys the interior of our home, and fails to take any responsibility or provide any reasoning for their actions.
In this case, a guest chose not to communicate with us about a clogged toilet. Instead, they left it to grow into a bigger problem causing damage and loss of property. Further events, which are a mystery to us, left an antique armoire riddled with holes and the flat screen HDTV that was contained in it was thrown to the ground. The armoire is still unrepaired and the TV was left inoperable. Needless to say, the entire problem cost us much more than the security deposit. We have sent several letters requesting information about the damage and asking for their assistance in paying for repair and replacement bills, but no response is ever given.
This marks the first and only time we have ever had to use the security deposit. We would have preferred to handle this differently, but the people that stayed in our home do not respond to any of our inquiries. Flipkey advised us to retain the security deposit as it may be the only form of compensation we will ever receive.
If you read our previous reviews you will find that we communicate very well with our guests before, during and after their stay. We provide a phone number and email address so our guests can get in touch with us at any time. We even have a phone in the vacation home for the use of our guests that don’t have cell phone service. We make ourselves available to our guests for any reason and we have trade professionals available to handle any issue that may arise during a guest’s stay. Most importantly, we return our guests’ security deposits within a couple of days, often on the day the guest checks out.
We want our guests to have the best possible vacation experience while staying with us. It makes us very happy that we can offer our beautiful home and it’s amenities as a place to reside while visiting the Monterey Bay area. It has many fine features that will delight and please every vacationer. We hope that you will come and enjoy it.
Great stay is a lovely, clean home

We stayed two nights in this Spanish Style Villa and loved our time there.
We stayed with another couple - there were two good sized bedrooms.
The kitchen was beautiful and equipped with luxury appliances. Everything was immaculate and decorated with great style.
The owners were truly helpful - in all ways. We especially enjoyed the list of their "favorites" which gave us some good clues about restaurants, shopping, things to see and do.
We loved being near Lovers Point and would love to return to the home, and the Monterey Peninsula!

Highly recommend this charming retreat!

My family rented this home for a 3 night stay. This home was perfect for the four of us! I don't even know how to begin to describe the wonderful feeling we had during our stay (and still have). The sunshine literally beamed through the house in the mornings and afternoons. We loved having the beautiful wood framed windows and doors wide open and the smell and sound of the ocean coming through. Although this home is small in square footage its designed and decorated to give it a much bigger and grand feeling, yet still feeling warm and cozy. Everything appeared as brand new. The beds were the most comforable beds we have ever slept in! The home was spotless and no clutter! The living area was comfy with loungable furniture and a spacious feel. Great for reading, chatting, watching tv or just gazing at Lovers Point. The two fireplaces were wonderful to use during our stay and helped add to the cozy feel. We enjoyed using the kitchen for cooking a few of our meals. The location was incredible! We were close enough to walk to everything if we wanted to or driving was always easy. We enjoyed taking our daughter to play at Caledonia park in the neighborhood and the beach at Lovers Point was just steps away from the house with a great snack bar with good food. Pavel's bakery just up the street is a must if you love fresh cinnamon rolls and danishes.Yum! We enjoyed a visit at the aquarium and greatly appreciated that two passes were included with the rental. We also spent an afternoon at Dennis the Menace Park in Monterrey and highly recommend it for anyone with kids. The owner was very responsive and easy to communicate with from our first contact through to our last day. She was very interested in making sure we loved her home and had everything we needed. We are so happy we found this home in PG and are excited to rent it again for a future vacation.

Our family of 5 stayed here in June 2012. The location was perfect, the cleanliness was perfect. Everything was new and exceeded expectations.The rental agreement/process was simple and seamless. My security deposit was refunded immediately. Simply a wonderful experience. We aren't typically ones to revisit the same places often, but all five of us would like to return and would plan our stay around this home's available dates.

We have been to Pacific Grove many times and this is the nicest place we've stayed. It is really incredible and we were very impressed by the decor and amenities. We especially liked cooking in the gourment kitchen and ending our day by the fireplace each night. The location was excellent. Lover's Point beach was across the street and some really great restaurants were only two blocks away.
The owner was extremely easy to deal with and answered all of our questions. Our stay came with two passes to the aquarium and we were very happy to use them. Most importantly, our refundable deposit was returned to us less than a week after our stay!
We will definitely recommend this to our friends and family. It is perfect for couples and families. We liked it so much that we're coming back in august. Read more
